5.0 out of 5 stars Dutiful and explorative rock with driving rhythms and a haunting core 10 Oct 2013
By Christopher Petro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Darcys
Toronto, Canada

Warring is among the most stunning and inspired albums of the millennium, on par with Arcade Fire's Funeral and Interpol's Turn on the Bright Lights. The third installment for the Toronto art-rock quartet pairs heavy and foreboding instrumentation with deafening rhythm and hook-filled songwriting. Somewhere in the venue of the Dears and the Doves, the Darcys impose a glum indie rock trinity (electric guitar, bass and drums) with a dim spotlight centered singer/keyboardist Jason Couse.

Often daring the falsetto, Couse is reined and controlled, imparting subtle emotional pulls while maintaining a long cool delivery. "The Pacific Theatre" is an understated deviation from the albums forceful up-tempo core (think Jeff Buckley "Hallelujah"). A lone piano murmurs with Couse's fertile octaves "I know rain soaked through / And our hearts bleed wanting a new day / pack up your fears."

Unconventional turns, pacing and novel songwriting ("Hunted" and "Itchy Blood") rewards Warring with listenability and artistic nuance. It's an album distinguished for implacable understatement. A song like "Pretty Girls" goes by unassuming, romping with rhythmic energy. Closer attention notes the stark, fluent mood changes and deep volatile vocal color underscored by barely-there harmonies and flourishing crescendos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 5 Dec 2013
By JWA - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very engaging and complete album. Earlier in The Darcys career they were described as featuring a strong "shoegaze" influence, which I've never understood given the fairly clean and accessible nature of their sound. 'Warring' is a bit of an evolution - more immediate and less wistful. There are shades of Wild Beasts and 'The Bends'-era Radiohead, but The Darcys have an identity of their own and a tremendous amount of talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Positively brilliant 28 Sep 2013
By Ed Hotchkiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic album. I haven't been able to put this away since it was released weeks ago. It spans a range of styles from the catchy, Foals-like math-rock feel of "Horses Fell," to the danceable pop of "Pretty Girls," to the undeniable energy of "Close to Me." I would listen to it even more often if I weren't afraid of wearing it out.

The Darcy's' first, eponymous album was interesting, jazzy shoe-gaze. I'm not a Steely Dan fan, but Their full cover of Aja brought a fresh look to the original. Both albums showed promise, but I was really impressed with how much they've grown in the past 18 months. The lyrics are a little self-absorbed, but they're wonderfully evocative. The musical arrangements are lavish, layered tapestries that continue to intrigue after multiple listens.

One other reviewer complains that this is categorized as rock. If you want to get hung up on a labels, stick with the major labels; they won't sign a band unless they fit neatly in an existing pigeon hole. If you bring an open mind, though, Warring will reward you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not wholly satisfying 26 Sep 2013
By Cyrus Esphahanian - Published on Amazon.com
I like Toronto's Darcys and enjoyed their remake of Steely Dan's Aja. Their new album is a good listen, but after repeated listenings, I just never fell in love with it. My favorite tracks are The River and Pretty Girls which have grown on me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh, this is so poor! 23 Sep 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Now, I will admit that I could only survive listening to the first 4 sample tracks but, I have to ask:

Q1. Who talked these people into believing they have talent & that people will purchase this 'music'?

Q2. Who was talked into to place this in the 'Rock' category? 'Alternative' I'd be able to just live with, even though 'Experimental' would be more accurate/polite - you'd hear more 'Rock' from an Australian Philharmonic Orchestra production than you get from this.
